Who needs a ski lift when you can use a Zeppelin?
Skiers Stefan Ager, Andreas Gumpenberger and Fabian Lentsch came up with the idea of using a Zeppelin to fly them to the summit of the 7,326-feet Kleiner Valkastiel mountain in Austria.
While heli-skiing has long existed, Zeppelin-skiing is very much a new idea.
Ager, Gumpenberger and Lentsch abseiled down from Zeppelin to the Kleiner Valkastiel's peak.
The adventurers then skied down the mountain's pristine slopes.
The expedition was two years in the making.
The trip delivered some spectacular images.
Beneath the summit, the skiers found an untouched, snow-filled scene.
The extreme sport trio found perfect conditions on their descent.
Ager said: "This is a world's first, a Zeppelin has never embarked on such an adventure."
Engineers and Zeppelin experts turned a far-fetched idea into breathtaking reality.
"This was more than just abseiling off a giant Zeppelin," Gumpenberger explained.
When the Zeppelin underwent a test run in the fall of 2018, it failed to reach the required altitude.
The 75-meter Zeppelin had to have its cabin adjusted in order to cope with the journey's rigors.
"When I was hanging under the Zeppelin, I felt like abseiling off a cloud, it did really feel bizarre," Ager recalls.
A dream ultimately became a phenomenal reality.
The Zeppelin hangar in Friedrichshafen, Germany, was a far cry from the extraordinary Alpine landscape that the airship's journey revealed.
